Slight musty note made me think it might be flawed, but that blew off completely after an hour. What others have praised as "light," I'm finding rather to be "thin." Still has brambly fruit, but for my palate this is past it's peak.
Everything I love about Zin in one bottle. Brambly, nice long spicy finish, a few herbs, blackberries, and a meaty quality that went really well with burgers. Only quibble, if any, is that it was slightly raisiny but to a degree that added complexity rather than took over.
2nd Annual 7 Deadly Zins tasting…well, 10 (My place, parramatta, sydney): Aromas of toast, red and black plums, biscuit, charcuterie, slight sweet spice and very light herbaceous notes. In the mouth the wine has flavours of juicy plum and cherry, more spice - almost peppery - here, quite concentrated with fine slight talc like tannins. Some alcohol warmth on the long finish and quite savoury notes as well. nice.
